Engaging hearts and minds


Powerful writing and audience-focused content engage hearts and minds. Over two decades in communications, writing, editing, and strategy this has always been my goal. I’ve served as staff member, consultant, and board director.

The son of a Chicago investigative journalist and press secretary, I grew up in the press room, engaged in robust dinner table debates, and falling asleep to the sound of a manual typewriter. This instilled in me curiosity, a desire for work with a purpose, and a love of good writing and compelling communications.
